Thanks for visiting the Old Chapel B&B web page


We are Lin and Dave Hennessey and we own The Old Chapel in Old Town on St Mary's on the Isles of Scilly, offering 2 rooms B&B


Old Town is a great base to explore all the islands have to offer but provides a more peaceful and relaxing location than the hustle and bustle of Hugh Town itself.


At The Old Chapel we offer a warm welcome, both of our spacious double rooms offer all you need for a comfortable stay, we want you to feel at home during your visit with us, we provide a locally sourced home cooked breakfast to set you up for the day, as you explore the beautiful sights the islands have to offer.


We can also offer a local insight into the island and if you wish, help make arrangements for travel or trips that you think might make your visit to the islands extra special.


We look forward to welcoming you to The Old Chapel
